Unfried Crispy Baked Beet's & Sweets Chips

Monday, August 22, 2011

A healthier and lower calorie alternative to potato chips and the fancy veggie chips available because these are not fried! These Beet's and Sweet's chips make a wonderful and colorful snack. Good for lunch, serving at parties or just munching on.

· 4 beets, large, scrubbed cleaned.
· 4 sweet potatoes, scrubbed clean.

· Pam cooking spray

· Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

1. Using the slicing blade of your food processor, a mandolin or a sharp knife, slice beets thinly. You want them to be the size of a potato chip.

2. Spread evenly on a cookie sheet, spray with Pam and season with salt and pepper.

3. Roast 45 minutes to 1 hour, turning halfway through, until crisp. Check often to make sure they don't burn. You may need to roast for a shorter or longer period of time depending on your oven and how crisp you want them - so keep an eye on them. :)

4. Serve as is, or with some Hummus...

Here's my copy cat recipe for Sweet Onion sauce

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

The Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki Sandwich is one of Subway's biggest new product rollouts in chain history. The sandwich is made with common ingredients: Teriyaki glazed chicken breast strips, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, and olives. But what sets it apart from all other teriyaki chicken sandwiches is Subway's delicious Sweet Onion Sauce. You can ask for as much of the scrumptious sauce as you want on your custom made sub at the huge sandwich chain, but you won't get any extra to take home, even if you offer to pay. Now you can add my version of the sauce to your home-built sandwich masterpieces whenever you want.

1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tablespoon minced white onion
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons white distilled vinegar
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon buttermilk powder
1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon poppy seeds
1/8 teaspoon salt
pinch cracked black pepper
pinch garlic powder

1. Combine all ingredients in a small microwave-safe bowl.
2. Heat mixture uncovered in the microwave for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on high until mixture boils rapidly.
3. Whisk well, cover and cool.
